The point is, it’s Hard to Extrapolate from a Point

The Long Nose of Innovation

Using examples from the Buxton-Microsoft Collection, the argument is made that knowing our history is as important to UX designers as it is to architects, musicians or any other creative discipline. Quite apart from needlessly reinventing the wheel, such knowledge provides insights which can provide significant competitive advantage from accelerated innovation. And, if nothing else, you may walk away believing – as I do – that ebay is by far a better prototyping tool than all the 3D printers in the world.
